review OSS decision

The Office of Student Services (OSS) policy board last
night considered a letter from President Robben Fleming
which said that the recruitment policy the board had adopted
is contrary to a regental decision, and must be cleared
through the Regents.
The OSS policy board responded that any organization
that disagrees with OSS recruiting policies should meet with
the policy board first, before going to the Regents to decide
the issue.
Fleming suggested in the letter that the policy be debated
before the Regents by OSS and other interested organizations.
The OSS policy requires a corporation to participate in
4 a forum if it is asked by one per cent of the student body.

Speaking to dn LSA faculty
meeting, Fleming cited the effects

strike against General Motors
(GM) would have on education
through appropriations at the
state level. /
An expectation of a six-week
strike was, built into the state's
budget -at the start of the fiscal
;year, Fleming said, but the strike
is now in its seventh week. A
deficit of between $4 and $5 mil-
lion accumulates each additional
week of the strike because of the
state's loss in tax revenue.
A provision in the State Con-
.stit tion prohibits deficit spend-
s ng, so the state must make bud-
get cuts, thus affecting education
Tax increases, Fleming said;
said, are seer by many politicians
as "the only way Michigan can
gain revenue." He specifically
mentioned proposed increases in
income and state appropriations
Among other causes of financial
problems, Fleming cited the Uni-
versity's commitnent to 10 per
cent black enrollment by 1973-74.
He emphasized that if the Fed-
eral government were to help bear
some of the cost of the additional
fiancial aid required, it would
mean less expense for the college.
Fleming also mentioned Federal
and state programs in the area
of aid to the disadvantaged as pos-
sibly alleviating University finan-
"p cial problems.
However, he added, "It will be
necessary to generate those funds
internally if there is -no other

and as the "serious cutback in

the issue in 1968, decided such a

about 90 per cent.\

computers and some 15,000 volun-

Levin's most important advan-
tage may lie in the strength of the.,
statewide Democratic ticket. Head-
ed by Sen. Phillip A. Hart, who is

cent of the vote against Republi-
can candidate Lenore Romney,
the ticket may sweep Levin into

Levin may be in trouble.
Good weather generally means a larger turnout of low-
income voters, who may find it difficult to get transportation
to the polls, or who may be easily discouraged from voting.

Vote on
Michigan voters will decide on
three statewide issues when they
vote today. The proposals include a
bonding issue for low-cost hous-
ing, the 18-year-old vote and the
most controversial of the three,
the parochiaid issue.
The parochiaid issue, proposal
C, has overshadowed the other
two proposals. The proposal would
prevent the use of public funds
for non-public elementary a n d,
secondary schools.
Proposal B would amend the
Michigan constitution and, lower
the voting age to 18. It was
soundly defeated on the 1968 bal-
In the meantime, the U.S. Con-
gress enacted the Voting Rights
amendments of 1970 which would
lower the voting age from 21 to 18
in all states for federal, state, and
local elections. Currently, hear-
ings are being held in federal
courts questioning the legality of
the' amendments.- If the anmend-
ments are upheld, statewide voting
requirements will remain.
Proposal !C will permit the first
large-scale expression of p u b Ii c
sentiment on the parochiaid is-
sue in the state. Thirty-six states
now provide at least token aid to
non-public schools, and expanded
programs ar being sought in
many of them.
Michigan has begun a program
of state subsidy to Catholic a n d
other n6n-public schools. Those
who advocate a 'Yes' vote, to kill
the parochiaid program, feel that
a 'No' vote will open the door to
larger and more expanded appro-
priations for non-public schools.
Many who advocate a 'No' vote
say the proposal woulld eliminate


members talk 0to classes

Striking auto workers spoke to some 40 Uni-
versity classes yesterday in an attempt to gain
support from students.
The workers, who are currently striking against
General Motors, were aided by the Students to
r Support the' Auto Workers (SSAW), who coordi-
nated the drive and set up speaking dates and
times. They reportedly 'ran into little resistance
from professors in arranging the appearances.
According to Norman Smallwood, a striking
worker, the workers came to "awaken students
to theefact that there is a strike going on." He
said the drive was extremely successful, and thatr
students seemed very receptive to' their ideas.
Smallwood- said they were trying to make stu-
dents realize that the strikers were working class,

dome of the same things such as inverse seniority
and a better disciplinary system.
He cited examples of what he called "unfair'
treatment" by General Motors. Weems attacked
GM's disciplinary system, saying, "If you are
accused of doing something wrong, you have to
wait $t least a year to get a ruling on whether
or not you are guilty. In the meantime, you are
punished and you have no say in the matter
Weems also told the students what means the
UAW was using to combat these procedures, in-
cluding the formation of classes to inform workers
of their rights.
Asked whether he thought the program had
been successful in enlisting the support of stu-
dents, Weems said "I'm sure it was." He said he

Prominent issues that have
been featured in most gubernator-

Of the 10 major industrial
states, eight have gubernatorial
elections and all except Texas
have a GOP seat at stake. Demo-
ciats are favored in Ohio and
Florida, and have at least an out-
side chance in Massachusetts,
Michigan and Pennsylvania.
Democrats are regarded as lead-
ing for Republican governorships
in Arkansas, Florida, Minnesota,
